    Changing the recovery using ODIN, and installing SU binary from the new recovery should not affect anything other than granting you root access.

    Awesome thanks! I've already rooted an HTC, so I'm at least familiar with CWM; off to find a ROM without all those damn Sprint apps!

    Hmmm, generic questions:

    This firmware on this device is slightly dated. With my HTC the root instructions madated that you never update the firmware, as the latest could not be rooted. Is this the case here? Stats are = Firmware 2.2.1, Kernel 2.6.32.9, Build Froyo EC05.

    Given that this is now a Cricket phone, what's the best ROM that has no Sprint apps left on it?

    What are my best hotspot app/hack options?

    Much thanks!
